Εν Άργει Διονύσια

Τα Εν Άργει Διονύσια, κάθε χρόνο τον Μάιο, δεν είναι απλά μία τυπική έκθεση και γευσιγνωσία των τοπικών κρασιών, αλλά μία ξεχωριστή πρόταση που ξεφεύγει από τα συνηθισμένα, με ψαγμένες ροκιές, ακροβατικούς χορούς και όμορφες καλλιτεχνικές πινελιές μέσα σε ένα «Καποδιστριακό» περιβάλλον.

Κάθε χρόνο ο Δήμος Άργους Μυκηνών δια μέσου της ΚΕΔΑΜ και σε συνεργασία με την Περιφέρεια Πελοποννήσου, διοργανώνει την επιτυχημένη εκδήλωση «ΕΝ ΑΡΓΕΙ ΔΙΟΝΥΣΙΑ» την άνοιξη στους Στρατώνες Καποδίστρια στην πόλη του Άργους.
